RSS readers are web services allowing users to subscribe to RSS feeds online and view them. If Firefox detects a feed, it offers the user to subscribe to it, either as a live bookmark or via one of the web services. The current RSS Readers in en-US are Bloglines, My Yahoo, Google. We want to ship a good set of defaults for Esperanto, and will work towards that in three stages. First, the localization team and Stas and Mic will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Eduardo, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox_web_services_guidelines. After we decided on a particular RSS reader, Mic will contact the owner and ask for permission. undefined, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information. Once we have a specification on what the set of RSS readers for Esperanto should look like, the localization team and Axel will work on an implementation on that. This should happen by the localization team creating and attaching patches for the desired changes, and requesting review from Axel. After a successful review, the localization team will land them. If you're not feeling comfortable with creating those changes, ask Axel to help out. Please don't commit any modifications in l10n/eo/browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties to the cvs repository without a patch reviewed by Stas or Axel or someone else appointed by Seth. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.
Will Bug 453109 do or do you need more feeds?
Sorry, it was about readers. I'll get back to you on this.
We checked a very long list of RSS readers. Most are english-only. We contacted those who already have more than language, asking if it was possible to localize (some of) those sites in Esperanto. That will probably take a long time. Currently it seems that only http://www.netvibes.com/ has its interface translated to Esperanto. So I think that in the meantime we can settle on netvibes and en-US defaults.
Eduardo, thanks a lot for you research. To summarize: * Netvibes * Bloglines * My Yahoo * Google Is this list OK for you? Can you prepare a patch?
Thanks Eduardo. I'll let Netvibes know that we're including them in the Esperanto build. Meanwhile, can you please set the review flag on the attachment to '?' and put me in the requestee field? Thanks!
